My husband and I raise cattle on our farm here in southwestern Ontario, so it's no surprise that we're fond of these saucy meatballs. I know your family will like them, too. —Marion Foster, Kirkton, Ontario

"Delish. I did cut the honey just a bit. Will make these again for sure."

"I could give this a higher rating, but 1/2 cup of honey made this way too sweet for us. Cut back the honey and enjoy the twang!"

"Really good. Will definitely make again. The last batch of garlic I purchased was a bit stronger than typical and I think it impacted the overall flavor of these so would like to try again with a good batch."

"Good, easy recipe. The taste was a little strong from the soy sauce, so I might reduce that a little next time."

"I made these last night. They are a little bit messy to make but they were a big hit to eat. I didn't have a baking rack like the recipe calls for, so I just baked them on a cookie sheet (or two). I made 24 good-sized meatballs and still had extra meat mixture left. Hubby had two sandwiches for dinner and hit up the leftovers already for breakfast. My son liked it as a sandwich and over rice as well."

"This recipe is great. It is fairly easy to follow and make. I love the sweet & slightly tangy taste. I did find the meat mixture to wet to form balls, so added an extra pound of hamburger and 1/2 cup bread crumbs, still a little too wet but balls could be formed. I served them over spaghetti, that was okay but I think the next time I make this I will serve them over rice with a spinach salad on the side. Also I will double the sauce. This is a definite keeper and will be making again."
